Lindsey is a likeable 10-year-old girl who definitely acts before she thinks. I thought this book was okay, but the lack of parental respect annoyed me a bit. There was one incident where the brother has thrown a pillow at his mother because she said "no" to something he wanted for his Bar-Mitzpah.
This book,was generally for a younger audince, but I read the back, and I was desperate for any book to read. I LOVED it! It was so funny, and cute, and honestly I would read it 10 more times. Such a great book, anyone can read it. I definately recommend it.
This book is far below my reading level, but it has been sitting in my room for years and I can not justify keeping it if I just don't read it. It was a cute children's book though. I did enjoy it =]
Lindsey By: Chrysa Atkinson

Lindsey is a young, mischievous girl who is always getting in trouble. She loves helping people but sometimes she gets a little carried away and then gets in trouble. Her Uncle Bernie moves in and she feels that it is her job to babysit him which ends him up in a rose bush. She also tried to set up her teachers which ended up in disaster and embarrassment. I give this book a five star rating because it totally pulled me in. I recommend it to anyone who is in to advent...more

Lindsey is a girl that everyone knows too well. She's that bumbling child who means well, but never has anything quite turn out the way she thinks it ought to. She jumps in and acts first, completely without thinking, but has at the heart of everything kind intentions.

Yep. She's THAT girl - she's us at that age, reminding us of those horribly embarrassing moments where we too, meant well.

I liked that about Lindsey. She has moments that make you cringe, she's got moments that make you want to ch...more
Awkward for the first half, gets better. But still not that great of a story.
Lindsay is an American Girl Today Book. Lindsay Bergman is 10 year old Jewish girl who loves her dog Tiny but doesn't like matzo balls. She loves helping people and defending her friends against bullies. Also she loves playing matchmaker to her two teachers. But her biggest task is cheering up her grumpy uncle. Great for girls or boys in 2nd and 3rd grade.
I didn't particularly like this book. I don't really know why but it just did not at all appeal to me. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone who likes historical fiction.
Useless, 10-word review: Unexpectedly charming. Lindsey came off like a real American Girl!
